Thank you for pointing these things out. I was unaware of the things you have
I failed to specify it in my original comment, but I do not condone the use
of 'mental illness' to refer to 'alternative mental wirings'. My statement
was meant to refer to the fact that being transgender, as well as some other
various personal attributes, appear to derive from differences in the brain
of the individual. However, they are not 'ill' and most definitely do not
need to be 'cured'. I apologise if any offence was taken at the implication.
I was unaware of any prior behaviour being associated. Presuming my
interpretation of the statement is correct (some behaviours are exhibited
which suggest this is not merely 'high emotions'), I still stand by the
statements made above, with the modifications mentioned above, but cede that
my judgement may be incorrect.
As regards the need for compassion, I agree. Whilst I feel that Leah's
behaviour needs to be addressed, she is suffering right now. She needs care
and understanding more than anything right now.
